An infra-red fixed point of N = 1 super-Yang–Mills theory is believed to be dual to a solution of five-dimensional gauged
N = 8 supergravity. We test this conjecture at next to leading order in the large N expansion by computing bulk one-loop
corrections to the anomaly coefficient a − c. The one-loop corrections are non-zero for all values of the bulk mass, and not just
special ones as claimed in previous work.
